dinesafe restaurants toronto

This week on DineSafe: Asahi Sushi, Curry Kitchen, Hasty Market, Kim's Cafe, Menchie's, Ming's Noodle Cafe, Poondy Bread, Tung Hing Bakery

This week on DineSafe was the week of perpetual poor performers. Sadly, I have seen many of these same restaurants on the offender list before, including Asahi Sushi with its second conditional pass in just a few weeks, and Hasty Market in Etobicoke with three conditional passes in a row. Oh, and then there's Kim's CafĂŠ, which has been closed twice within the span of less than a year, and Tung Hing Bakery with its own record of conditional passes and a recent closure. Terrible performance, all. Just terrible. Here's a look at some of the DineSafe inspections this week.
